For all our political differences, Americans seem to agree on one thing: None of us like career politicians. That’s why more than 4 out of 5 Americans say they support term limits for members of Congress.

Here’s the catch: Term limits may create as many problems as they solve. Political scientists have extensively studied what happens in states that adopt term limits and … it ain’t pretty. States with term limits tend to see more political polarization because term-limited politicians looking for their next office tend to toe the party line…and political parties start hand-picking more candidates. Turnover can also lead to politicians having less expertise on the issues they’re passing laws about. And the less lawmakers know, the more they tend to turn to special interests for guidance.

On this episode of Diverse Talking Heads podcast the panels discuss and offer their opinion on if term limits are a good idea.
